First, these aren’t playing favorites to a website or label, but in the horror genre there are plenty of places to purchases the merchandise, and while many don’t call it this, I do, horror is more than an interest, it’s a lifestyle, ask those hardcore members of the ranks, Think of all the avenues available from home decorations to accessories for automobiles, even car shows have gotten into the swing of things, with zombie vehicles (often gimmicky), clothing with Cavity Colors offering more vivid items than the standard bearer of Fright Rags. However still what appears an overlook item is the music, namely soundtracks, but without the composer the images may be shocking, but the drive of story comes from the sound.

MANIAC Original Netflix Series Soundtrack

Starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, MANIAC is a 2018 psychological dark sci-fi series that follows two strangers who connect during a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial.

The soundtrack by Oscar nominated composer Dan Romer is an orchestral and electronic hybrid with incredible production and diverging sounds. Playful electronics alternate between fast moving and ambient synth work. Chasing percussion transitions seamlessly with dramatic, lush strings. The soundtrack to MANIAC is a textural playground that caters to any listener. Like the series, the soundtrack is cerebral, emotionally provoking, and hypnotic.

Waxwork Records had the pleasure of creating a deluxe 2xLP soundtrack package to MANIAC featuring 180 gram neon yellow and pink vinyl, old style gatefold jackets with overall UV gloss coating, printed inserts, and design by Aesthetic Apparatus.

JACOB’S LADDER 30th Anniversary Soundtrack

Jacob’s Ladder is a 1990 psychological horror movie starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Peña, and Danny Aiello. The film follows Jacob Singer, a Vietnam veteran, whose experiences before and during the war result in strange, fragmented visions and bizarre hallucinations that continue to haunt him. As his ordeal worsens, Jacob desperately attempts to figure out the truth. Though only moderately successful upon release, Jacob’s Ladder garnered a cult following. Its plot and special effects became a source of influence for various other works such as the horror video game Silent Hill and the TV series American Horror Story. Kim Manners prepared for directing The X-Files episode “Grotesque” by listening to the score to Jacob’s Ladder.

The experimental score by late French composer Maurice Jarre is dynamic and haunting with use of piano, synth, orchestral cues, and droning electronic soundscapes that feature reverberating horns, chants, tribal woodwinds, and chasing percussion. The avant-garde score is atmospheric and melancholy without sacrificing melody. It features seamless transitions that reflect Jacob’s loneliness, grief, nightmares, and horrific hallucinations.

Waxwork Records is excited to present the complete score to JACOB’S LADDER as a deluxe vinyl release featuring high quality packaging, 180 gram “Subway Hallucination” metallic silver and metallic gold swirled vinyl, artwork by Jérémy Pailler, and audio re-mastered from the original master tapes.

Composed by: Danny Elfman

La-La Land Records, Universal Pictures, Universal Music Special Markets and Geffen Records celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the 1990 motion picture DARKMAN with a remastered and expanded 2-CD presentation of renowned composer Danny Elfman’s (BATMAN, BATMAN RETURNS, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS) original score. This beloved sci-fi/horror/action hybrid starring Liam Neeson, Francis McDormand and Larry Drake, and directed by Sam Raimi, marked the first collaboration between Raimi and composer Danny Elfman – a union that would continue to flourish, resulting in such notable scores as A SIMPLE PLAN, SPIDER-MAN, SPIDER-MAN 2, OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL). DARKMAN finds Elfman in the period following his immortal, breakthrough BATMAN score, and here, he unleashes another gothic and expressionistic orchestral wonder – a tragic, haunting, brooding and darkly romantic musical deep dive that is rich in theme and brimming with classic film score motifs. DISC 1 of this anniversary presentation features a remaster of the original 1990 soundtrack assembly, while DISC 2 finally unleashes the expanded film score in all of its might! Produced by Mike Matessino and Neil S. Bulk, and mastered by Matessino, this limited edition release of 3000 units features a bounty of previously unreleased music. The releases’ exclusive, in-depth liner notes are by writer Daniel Schweiger and the robust art direction is by Dan Goldwasser.
